El Bambi

October 24th, 2013 |Posted by Janelle

Never underestimate the power of a well placed bit of cartoon magic; each season Riccardo Tisci comes up with at least one Givenchy must have that makes a splash and for the last few months its been all about Bambi. The opening look of the designer’s critically lauded fall collection was a Disney inspired sweatshirt that added touch of twee to the typically hard-edged Givenchy look and instantly became a cult status symbol. The signature piece has been making waves in magazines of late with the Bambi shirt appearing on the cover of Vogue Japan, the newly launched Miss Vogue AustraliaVogue China and Madame Figaro, not to mention inside appearances in i-D Magazine & V Magazine. Add in the fact that this little number has also been spotted on the backs of everyone from Beyoncé Knowles to Carine Roitfeld and you have the makings of a moment.

Fashion’s current queen of austerity is transformed into a tattooed femme fatale by the talented Shay Ashual and Lisa Butler. The film noir styling by George Cortina, coupled with a wild array of body art creates a unique new look for Ms. Strokous, while Sundsbø’s dramatic photography style provides a showcase for her posing talents. The stylized shoot offers a welcome change of pace from the usual vintage inspired edit, all while adding a hard edge to one of fashion’s most delicate beauties.

The strongest looks of the season come to life, in Sundsbø’s streamlined interpretation of athletic chic. Clad in barely there, Cortina selected pieces from Marc Jacobs, Azzedine Alaia and Prada, Andrea cuts a fine figure against the crystalline blue sky backdrop. Running in Tom Ford’s mile high heels isn’t a full-fledge sport yet, but Sundsbø’s beautiful shots  manage to make such impossible feats look downright appealing.

Edit of the Week : A Simple Plan

June 1st, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

A good story doesn’t need a lot of bells and whistles, sometimes the very best rely on tenants of simplicity. Willy Vanderperre (Paris: Management + Artists, New York: Management + Artists) creates an elegant exploration of denim in the latest Vogue Japan with a little help from master stylist George Cortina. Taking one of the most commonplace (and often boring) materials and making editorially relevant is no small feat, but Cortina pulls it off masterfully. On the backs of Marte Mei van Haaster, Katryn Kruger & Victor Nylander the pieces come alive and pared down hair and makeup by Anthony Turner and Lucia Pica add the final bit of polish to a story that feels effortless.

The Look of Daniele & Iango

April 6th, 2012 |Posted by Janelle

There are a lot of talented people on the scene, but it is rare to see a fresh photographer break through the glass ceiling. Let’s face it – most of the high profile work still goes to names like Testino / Lindbergh / Meisel, etc.  and while we love all those greats – charting the progress of newer talent can be riveting.  Daniele Duella and Iango Henzi are in the midst of an editorial moment right now, with beautiful work appearing in i-D Magazine, Vogue Japan, Vogue Germany and V Magazine.

The duo showcases a great deal of versatility within their work, but each image is marked by a certain off-kilter elegance. Whether it is China Machado carefully adding a Rick Owens hair comb to Shalom Harlow‘s up-do, or Natasha Poly posed like a debutante in seafoam Chanel, the pictures are always refined: every detail just so, not a hair out of place. Speaking of which, Danielle and Iango’s refined style is always enhanced by the genius hair stylings of their frequent collaborator Luigi Murenu.

Stylist: Patti Wilson | Hair: Luigi Murenu | Makeup: Stephane Marais | Models: Carolyn Murphy, Isabeli Fontana, Guinevere Van Seenus, Shalom Harlow & China Machado for i-D Magazine

Stylist: George Cortina | Hair: Luigi Murenu | Makeup: Jeanine Lobell | Model: Natasha Poly for Vogue Japan

Stylist: Joanne Blades | Hair: Luigi Murenu | Makeup: Karim Rahman | Casting: Julia Lange | Models: Eniko Mihalik, Snejana Onopka, Iris Strubegger & Karolina Kurkova for Vogue Germany

Sui He brings style to the pages of Vogue Japan in a striking series of images by Terry Richardson. Were used to seeing Terry’s signature snapshot style, but Sui’s presence adds a layer of elegance, even when she’s dressed in neon zebra print chosen by George Cortina.

Wilderness Retreat

Sølve Sundsbø.
Joan Smalls.
George Cortina.
A singularly beautiful story where styling and nature merge seamlessly. Look at the way the Haider Ackermann suit coordinates exactly with the lush vegetation, or how the texture of Joan’s shimmering Roberto Cavalli is almost identical to that of the bark on the tree she’s against. Flawless little details like this are what make Sundsbø’s work so memorable and this Vogue Japan story so charming.

A psychedelic and sensual tribute to richly patterned clothes and highly pigmented lipcolor that jumps off the pages of Vogue Japan. Another simply well done story from Sølve featuring some truly gorgeous makeup by Polly Osmond.
